The Kindle is an electronic book reader available from Amazon. I have been using a Kindle since it was first released in December 2007 and I highly recommend it. The new Kindles (released in 2010), the Kindle Wi-Fi and Kindle 3G (free 3G + Wi-Fi), work in many countries. There are no “roaming” charges if you use the Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet for downloading when traveling in Europe.
